Yellow Wood Divergences: Patagonia
Feb 16 @ 8:00 am – Feb 24 @ 8:00 am

There are few bucket lists that don’t include a breathtaking (or breath-giving) trip to picturesque Patagonia, and for obvious reason if you’ve ever so much as glimpsed at an image of the region’s otherworldly glaciers. Often revered as the pinnacle holiday for adventurers, Patagonia features colossal, crystal blue glaciers, a symphony of wildlife quite unlike anywhere else in the world, and swirling, dreamy skies that seem to extend beyond the reaches of our Earthly existence.

Our next Divergence will take you there – to the southernmost tip of South America, where, nestled along the western coast of Chile are landscapes so vast and pristine it looks animated. Join us in February 2019 to enjoy an adventure beyond your wildest imagination!

Exact dates and pricing coming soon.

Travel Journal Workshop #1 at Yellow Wood
Feb 16 @ 12:30 pm – 2:00 pm

Back by popular demand! We’re ecstatic to announce that on Saturday, February 16, local artist Bela Roongta will merge three of her passions – travel, journaling and making art – into a fabulous workshop designed to empower you with the tools needed to create your own meaningful keepsake.

What is it?
A travel journal uses mixed media – photos, clippings, found items and your own written memories to create a journal that will allow you to relive your adventure for years to come.

What to expect:
Bela was kind enough to extend her traditional hour-long workshop into a 1.5-hour format, allowing more time for us to get inspired by some of Bela’s works, discuss ideas with the small group and take some time for personal reflection and practice.

What to bring:
Yourself! No need to prepare anything ahead of time. If you plan to start a journal to memorialize a trip you’ve already gone on, you’re welcome to bring photos and ideas with you.

Bela is offering this workshop to friends of Yellow Wood at the very special price of $25 (normally $75). Registration includes a journal and pen.

What to know:
Each session is limited to six people. The last workshop we hosted filled quickly, so early registration is encouraged!
